Mendocino County is a county located in the U.S. state of California. As of 2000, the population was 86,265. The county seat is Ukiah.
Mendocino County was one of the original counties of California, created in 1850 at the time of statehood. The county derives its name from Cape Mendocino, which was probably named in honor of either Antonio de Mendoza, Viceroy of New Spain, 1535-1542 (who sent the Juan Cabrillo Expedition to this coast in 1542), or Lorenzo Suárez de Mendoza, Viceroy from 1580 to 1583. Mendocino is the adjectival form of the family name of Mendoza.
